MaART version 20060423 released

The Music and Audio Retrieval Tools (MaART) project is a set of software components used to investigate and implement retrieval / searching of music and audio. This release features: the first version of the album summariser (condense); mpglib and a utility to convert an mp3 file to a wave file; a basic wave to midi converter; improved documentation on the setting up MaART on a web server (with automated indexing of Usenet files). A binary package is available for MS Windows and a source package for other platforms.

The remit of MaART covers content-based and meta-data based solutions, segmentation and content selection (summarisation) of audio and music. First iterations are based on MIDI but digital audio (MP3 and WAV) extensions are in progress. The long-term aim is to produce an online audio search engine with the usability and effectiveness of Internet search engines for text, such as Google.

The more information and downloads are available from the project page: http://sourceforge.net/projects/maart/
